Pretty much of a twin to the farthing. Extraordinarily sharp strike on an issue that is often weak and mushy. Hard, almost semi-PL surfaces and finished with lovely dark chocolate brown color. The photo does not do this justice as the few minor darker spots of toning that appear so vividly on the photograph are barely noticeable in hand. Superb.
*NEW* Very well impressed front and back with all design details sharp. Perfectly centered with full denticals on both sides. Lovely chocolate brown with flashes of original red in and around the lettering and portrait. Distraction free.
Needle sharp strike and superb surfaces are just the beginning of this fabulous Coronet Cent. A gorgeous blend of brown with violets and blues blend together to give this sparkling piece extraordinary Eye-appeal. Finished with glowing luster. Gorgeous type coin.
*Aspen Park Collection - HT-195, Portsmouth MA* Very choice uncirculated specimen of this Massachusetts Store Card. Even deep chocolate brown with considerable original RED in and around the lettering on both sides. Pop: 2-62, 3-63, 4-64, 0-65, 1-66.
*NEW* Super nice for the grade, featuring a full strike, virtually mark free surfaces and chocolate brown patina. The color of the reverse image is way too red. The coin is bascially chocolate brown on the reverse.
A phenomenal Large Cent and among the best I have seen for ANY date. Fully struck on both sides with flawless fields and full luster over even chocolate brown patina. Original red in and around all devices front and back give this piece exceptional eye-appeal. A stunning coin and rare variety. Comps on Heritage Auctions show prices realized around $20K plus for NON-CAC coins.
*ON HOLD - NEW* Pop: 1, finest graded in RB, with none better than MS65 in RED. Another stunning copper with beautiful blue highlights contrasting fiery red surfaces. Gorgeous and I’m sure considerably more eye-appealing than any full RED example.
*NEW* Exceptionally well struck front and back with full feather details on the Eagle breast, beak, wing tips and tail, very unusual for this generally weakly struck type. The reverse is equally well struck. No distracting marks and strong luster.
